    Black Desert Online is a unique MMO in many ways. Pearl Abyss' design team has taken a lot of the traditional MMORPG elements and seemingly turned them on their head to make a game of non-confirmative systems that feels like an experiment in a lot of ways.

  • On Gender Locking the Classes

    One thing that everyone here at seems to agree on, with regards to Black Desert, Devilian, TERA, and other imported MMOs, is that gender locking classes is an unwanted practice. As a player, you either have to come to accept it, or refuse to play what could be your preferred class. In a genre that's original intent was to let you play the character of your complete choosing, locking classes behind certain genders seems in opposition of that intent.

Enter Black Desert Online (BDO), the upcoming fantasy MMORPG from Pearl Abyss and Daum Games, which just completed its first CBT this week.
